You guys are the best...



Parades!
Most people heard we were taking Jackson to Mardi Gras and gave us a great big side eye.
You think it is all beer and umm "chest parts" It is not. At all. 
Yes those places do exist but, for the most part it is very family friendly.

First up was so Special. 
My Uncle CJ was riding in Babylon on Thursday but, since the weather was bad it got rescheduled to Saturday. One of the guys couldn't ride who was in the line up.  
CJ called to see if since Brian was turning 30 he would want to ride.
UMM YES!

So we got up bright and early to get him to CJ so they could head to the parade starting place.

This was when we got to the parade route at 9am look how crowded it already is!

How the kids watch the parade.
(we have so many pics of us in them when we were young)

See...

We found daddy before the parade. Poor Bubs was sleepy.

Daddy and Uncle Justin
We went and got in our spot.
 After Daddy's float went by we were heading straight over to My Aunt Missy's friend Micheals house to watch the Toath Parade since daddy wouldn't get off his route till about 1:30.
Does somebody look sleepy?

Can you believe it, right before the parade started. 
It was ok he saw plenty more so we let him snooze.
but, I kinda hated he missed daddy.

Daddy's float...
he is the 4th one back.
{eepp so exciting)
 It was so much fun watching him ride. 
I was so excited he got the chance and he had so much fun!
Thanks CJ!

So off to Toath we went. Jackson woke up and got a first class ride from his favorite Uncle.

Check back tomorrow for the wrap up. 
I am going to fit in a ton of parades tomorrow so we can start on the walking post!
It was such an awesome trip. Who wants to come meet up next year?
